Felix Sockwell features his icon design work, methods, sketches, and more.
- [Instructor] In this movie, I want to share with you…some iconic work created by New Jersey-based…designer and illustrator Felix Sockwell.…I've known Felix for over a decade and…he's nothing short of a creative maverick.…So let's take a look at his iconography.…Felix is best known for his linear…continuous line illustration but he uses it in a very iconic…way and I think this is a good representation of that.…It communicates recycle, it has a person in it,…a cloud, a tree, it has an apple in it.…
And when you think of all of those things together,…you don't think simple, but this works in a very simple way…but in a very creative and compelling way as well.…Now, one thing Felix created in this linear iconic format…is a little continuous line coffee cup.…This was for a company based out of Portland, Oregon,…called Coffee People and I see this icon all the time…when I'm going through the airport.…Now, Felix works with regular clients like Verizon…and these, as well, are a linear style…but far more simplified and it captures the essence…
